Gal Gadot Shares Her Experience as The Evil Queen While Shooting ‘Snow White’

Disney’s Snow White is currently filming at Pinewood Studios in London, England. While there have been no set photo leaks for the highly-anticipated project, one of the film’s stars is sharing their experience on set.

While speaking to Forbes, actress Gal Gadot revealed what it’s like playing Walt Disney’s first villain in the Evil Queen, as well as working with a talented cast and crew.

“I love it (laughs)! It’s fun, I get to do something different. I get to sing and I get to dance and I get to play the villain, which is something that I’ve never done before – and it’s the first Disney villain ever. I really enjoy working with all people involved, with Marc Webb [directing] and Marc Platt producing and Disney, of course, [actress] Rachel Zegler. It’s just a great experience and I really, really enjoy it and The Evil Queen is very evil, so it’s going to be interesting.”

Rachel Zegler, hot off West Side Story stars as the iconic Disney Princess, alongside Andrew Burnap as the Jonathan, a new character created for the film, and Wonder Woman star Gal Gadot as the Evil Queen. The film was able to move forward with production despite a studio fire that broke out last month incinerating some of the village set.

Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs will be directed by Marc Webb (500 Days of Summer, Sony’s The Amazing Spider-Man films), while Marc Platt (La La Land) will produce. La La Land‘s Benj Pasek and Justin Paul will also be working on providing the music for the film, reportedly helping to expand on the story and score from the original classic.

Disney has yet to give Snow White an official release date but is expected to debut next sometime next year, following The Little Mermaid.
